park police, corrections, charles county maryland state, loudoun county sheriff's office fairfax, chesapeake search and rescue dogs east mason dixon search dogs bay area canine search and rescue and pennsylvania search dogs. >> now, while family members and some volunteer searches held out hope these children will be found alive, there's still a glimmer of help they will. this is sort of a recovery effort. they don't have any new leads as far as they are saying on where these children may be. we do know police are starting to pursue murder charges against catherine hoggle the mother of the two children. the certainly will go on through the day, hopefully find more on these missing kids. what we're learning by quick action by an off-duty cop when
i think it's pretty safe to say we're already in full presidential election mode. from chipotle road trip to new hampshire, no shortage of fuel to the fire already. >> joining us to talk all about it moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. i want to start with republicans. it's been a big weekend in new hampshire. the one thing we saw between those presidential hopefuls they weren't going after each
other. >> not yet. they will they will. they have a new target hillary clinton. it's interesting, attacks on hillary clinton were among those to distinguish in the field, attacking as a candidate of the past. every attack on that is effective for going after jeb bush. >> they should have retired could be y doo. when it was the same schtick when she was running for senate. by the way, there hasn't been a scooby doo in a while. do you want to go through the mystery machine, what's in the
scooby doo snacks. >> i love it. >> talking old school who we heard from perhaps resonated with that message the most this week with marco rubio. he really went out of his way to separate yesterday from today. consider top tier candidate at this point? >> we'll see. i think he has potential to be top tier. obviously he's got to financially become viable to put together a campaign. coming from the same state as jeb bush i think that will be one of his challenges. if he can put together an infrastructure of the campaign he could. one of the things you'll see on the show i'm doing, it's fascinating to hear marco rubio. rhetoric similar to another young candidate in their 40s that ran for president not too long ago, bill clinton. the rhetoric bill clinton used in '92 and '96, againational change rhetoric. now hillary clinton. you know how bill clinton would run against hillary clinton, marco rubio is doing it. this to me is one of her great challenges. >> one of her close personal
friends on your show what is terry mcauliffe talking about. >> he's an unabashed loyal friend of the clintons. it's interesting to see as hillary clinton moves left does that make her electable in a swing state like virginia. an interesting conversation we had when it came to this issue. many progressives trying to bring her to the left. at the same time trying in general. may be a presidential announcement. john kasich governor of ohio been together. interesting to see what he's saying. 16 years ago he announced on "meet the press," why not do it again. >> calling for a repeat. remind you, see "meet the press" on nbc 4 right after "news 4 today." police in maryland searching for a suspect that stole a police officer's car with his special needs son still in the back seat. the officer works for maryland capitol police.

it will happen thursday tied to the anniversary of the 1942 warsaw ghetto uprising in poland. a group of people waking up brand-new members of the rock 'n' roll hall of fame green day, billy withers, ringo starr among those. ringo starr was inducted as beatle a few decades ago, stevie ray vaughn butterfield blues band they made the hall. congratulations. >> i've seen this before. it's a story to start your sunday off with laughter. clint chad warren on the way back to massachusetts when they decided to take a little pit stop. you can see what happens here. clint's seat belt locks up. >> mom -- >> look at you, look. >> look at me. i am stuck in this car. sit back.
>> mom, what do you think i'm doing. laying down? >> stuck in the car. >> posted the video to facebook. the video has 32 million views. it's worn of those things when you're walking with a friend and they slip and fall but at the same time you can't help but laugh. she's not even trying to help. >> not at all. also shows we'll watch anything online. this poor guy, get him out of the car. >> never had that. good to have scissors in hand. >> one more time mom, i'm stuck in the car. >> you're good at that. you know what that reminds me of storm truck, seat belt in the storm truck. you will not pull. then you're stuck there. locks up all the time. >> you know it's a good thing. >> i feel safe. >> talking about a cooldown noticeably different. >> 20 degrees cooler than yesterday. a high today of 65. tomorrow we jump back up. a high of 75. with that a threat of severe weather in the forecast mainly
very early in the day before you even leave for work heavy rain isolated flash flatting. middle part of the day, dry, sunshine but that sun helps bubble up for the afternoon and evening hours. storms have a chance to be strong to severe main part high winds producing isolated wind damage maybe a little hail unlikely we'll be tracking a tornado tomorrow. this is looking like more of a straight line wind event. temperatures right now in the low- to mid-60s. where you're at right now pretty much where you're going to stay throughout the day. the forecast and temperature in washington 5:00. you can see it sits around 65 degrees. 64 for a high in manassas 63 for a high in frederick with plenty of clouds across the area. breezy. 5:00 we start to see rain moving into the area but it could get into the beltway as early as 3:00 p.m. i think between 5:00 and 7:00 is kind of the magic time period when we really start
to see showers moving in. after that heavy rain bright colors on future weather. that's indicating downpours. downpours out of the area 6:00 a.m. when you're starting to get on the road. for the most part showers lingering, working way down. you could have lunch outdoors comfortable with sunshine. temps in the mid-70s but then a cold front moves through tomorrow evening. here you can see this heavy activity pushing through at 7:00 p.m. a thunderstorm. then after that we'll dry out setting us up for a dry but cooler tuesday. so today again a high of 65. most if not all of the day is dry, but overnight tonight and early tomorrow morning when that heavy rain could wake you up. tomorrow is the warmest day out of the next seven. but the threat of showers and storms later in the day means it will ab weather alert. tuesday breezy a high around 70. if you want more spring-like
temperatures wednesday, thursday friday and saturday looking good. mid-60s for highs on wednesday and thursday. the chance of some showers on thursday just nuisance showers. won't really benefit from it the garden wouldn't. friday a high of 62 and saturday a high of 63. >> all right, amelia thanks so much. we do want to remind everybody to keep it here for "press pass" right after "meet the press a new form of innovation is taking shape,
